I am running LibreOffice on Ubuntu 11.10, Asus netbook, w/2g RAM. I use the
word processor extensively.

Frequently, when working on a document in Writer, I get a "cannot write to
disk" error. Subsequently, I cannot save in any other program. For example,
if I open a text editor and copy the text to a new file, I get the same
error message. This happens more often when operating on battery power than
when using A/C. If I do not reboot right away, I will get a total system
failure. If that happens before exiting Writer, the document I am working
on becomes corrupted.

This only happens when I am using LO in Ubuntu. This never happens in WinXP
or Win7. I haven't observed this trouble in any of the "live distros" I've
played with. Much to my dismay, I have noticed that Win can be a little
more forgiving of some hardware issues than Ubuntu. I don't have Win on
this netbook, but I never had any problems when it was installed.

How can I tell if this problem is related to LO, Ubuntu or hardware?
